Securities and Mergers & Acquisitions Litigation

We have extensive experience in securities and mergers & acquisitions litigation, including proceedings before securities commissions, and all levels of the courts. Our strength in this area is reinforced by the expertise of our renowned corporate-securities group with whom we work closely on all aspects of litigation including strategy, preparation for litigation and resolution of threatened enforcement proceedings. We have considerable experience in all aspects of take-over bid litigation, including injunctions, poison pill proceedings and oppression actions.
